This Stackoverflow question is the situation I am talking about... I'd like to accept the answer on ServerFault.

They are separate sites. There is no mechanism to accept an answer from another site.

If you discovered a good answer elsewhere (in this case Server Fault), I would post it as an answer to your question and accept it. You also need to give attribution to the original source.

Uhhh if the question get's migrated to SF he should associate his account and then it's his question, isn't it? – Ivo Flipse Jun 20 '10 at 14:29
Yes, if the question belongs on SF, that makes more sense. I didn't know it was being migrated. That's more your department <grin>. – Robert Cartaino Jun 20 '10 at 16:31
It's not being migrated... how do I start that process? Good idea. – Marcus Jun 20 '10 at 17:05
Ah I didn't bother to check whether it was or not. However, if it is kept alive on Stack Overflow, I believe the current policy is that it should be treated like a native question. So copy-paste the answer from SF and accept it. – Ivo Flipse Jun 20 '10 at 20:25
Oh and in the future @Marcus, ask the question in one place and if it's in the wrong place, the community will move it for you. – Ivo Flipse Jun 20 '10 at 20:25
